NPR's Michele Norris talks with Danny Way about his design of the Mega Skateboard Ramp for Friday's 10th annual ESPN X-Games in Orange County, Calif. Way's also a skateboarder. His ramp is a nine-story tower down a ski jump-style slope. Boarders must soar across a 50-foot gap to a second wooden slope.
